3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(03.28.06) 12 oz green bottle purchased from Tomokazu restaurant, San Francisco International Airport, CA and labeled as “Tsingtao Export.” Poured golden yellow with small white head. Frizzy carbonation. Sweet malt in the nose. Light bodied pils-style Chinese lager that starts with light malt sweetness and corn/nutty flavors. Finishes dry and clean with light malt fade. No discernable hop presence. This is a refreshing crisp lager that went well with salmon teriyaki. Relatively speaking, this lager is more flavorful than Bud but not malty rich and flavorful as Czechvar.

What I really liike about this beer is that it has distinct taste to it. Very malty beer has no bitter hoppy aftertaste to it, has a very heineken quality to it. Tastes really good with Chinese food.

It tastes like a good, non-skunky Henieken. Which dispite what many on here say, I think is pretty tasty. Definitly has a little drier of a taste/mouthfeel, but that is expected from a beer coming from Asia I think.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light golden colored pour. Had a malty, grassy aroma to it. Had a hoppy, sweet carbonated finish to it. Not bad.
